hi, shouldn't Epson 2150 also make the cut as well? it's selling for $699 both at Amazon and Bestbuy.

Hayati, prices in this market are extremely fluid and volatile. When we defined the sub-$700 category a few weeks ago the Espon 2150 was selling for $899 retail and $749 on occasional sales. Now it is temporarily at $699. It will be reviewed shortly with the BenQ 2050A which is also in the $800 range. Meanwhile, the Optoma HD29Darbee was below $700 when we set up the shootout, so we included it. Now it is at $724. We cannot reorganize, add, and delete models from a shootout as prices change from day to day.
